Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-518 2nd Cir. Not Argued Jun 13, 2022 9-0 Barrett OT 2021

Holding: Although 28 U.S.C. § 1782(a) permits a district court to order discovery “for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal,” only a governmental or intergovernmental adjudicative body may qualify as such a tribunal, and the arbitration panels in these cases are not such adjudicative bodies.

Judgment: Reversed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Barrett on June 13, 2022.
